Foster families give up a lot to these foster children that come into their homes for care while someone else decides if, or when, these children can return home. While we understand it is not easy for the foster children, or biological family, this is no cake walk for the foster family.
If the biological parents would put half the energy that is spent hating foster parents and blaming others for their problems that placed them in this situation, towards working to getting their children back, they would have them back in a few months. The biological parents made the choices that led up to their children being placed into foster care not other people.
The responsibility of the situation that the biological parents find themselves in is their’s to own up to. The children become the causalities that are dragged along for the ride. Let the anger push you towards getting your children back, and not attacking the people trying to help your children.
Is it in the best interest of your children for you to stand up for a parent that allowed a baby to lay and die in the home for five hours, or a parent that placed a popsicle on a toddlers head or in his mouth after falling down a flight of stairs while he was bleeding (was not suppose to have custody of her children to begin with)? Can there really be a defense to these parents’ actions? In my eyes it does not matter who harms a child; biological parents, foster parents, or anyone else, it is wrong and inexcusable.
I have been amazed to find websites that tell and teach biological parents how to continue their life choices that have lead to child welfare becoming involved in their lives while keeping child welfare at bay. To me as a human being and mother this is alarming. I have yet to find a website that helps foster parents to harm children or to beat the system, so to speak.
